A word from Sage Room - Harvey's Lake Tahoe
The Sage Room at Harvey's has been a Tahoe landmark since opening in 1947. An elegant Western-themed steak house, The Sage Room is popular with locals and guests alike.

The Sage Room’s décor includes original Native American lamps that were gifted to Harvey's from the Washoe Tribe, the original bar, and hand-hewn beams that were part of the original log cabin that housed Harvey's in 1944.

The Sage Room features unique appetizers and salads prepared table side, along with Black Angus steaks, poultry, veal, lamb, Beef Wellington and seafood. Dessert specialties include Bananas Foster and Cherries Jubilee, both prepared table side.

    Great old time steak house. Your Caesar salad is prepared table side, and is excellent. Some steaks and desserts are also prepared table side. Excellent service. I suggest a reservation as it fills up fast.

    Very disappointing. Tried to eat here but always booked out so we planned ahead this time, had a reservation. Got there at the appointed hour was told sit and have a drink in the bar it would be about 10-15 minutes. No thanks we're not interested in sitting in the bar - they found us a table immediately (and there were plenty available) Half hour after we arrived they set a table for 20 golfers who proceeded to have a loud, foul-language weekend tour meeting mid-restaurant. To our right 4 guys who were visited by a scantily clad woman who lifted her skirt up and left. Waiter banged into my husband's chair EVERY time he passed by. Food was overpriced and very ordinary. Staff were pleasant - all around bad experience would never go back.

    The place is a little dated. Not that it's the restaurants fault but at a table by us the people were crude and dropped F-bombs all over. So much so a woman from another table went over and asked them to tone it down and they told her to F-off. Nice place but drunk casino trash people shouldn't be let in. Have a jacket and tie rule, none of the trailer trash peole would even own one so they couldn't get in. If I'm going to pay $300 for dinner I expect some class.

    We had been looking forward to this Dinner for 2 months, we went to celebrate our 15 yr Anniversary... Me and my wife were so excited to go we even looked up the menu and picked out our food 3 weeks or so before we even went to Tahoe... When we looked at the menus and seen that they had Beef Wellington I was sooo happy, I have been wanting to try this dish for years.... So when we went I ordered the Beef Wellington, I asked for Med Well, it came out bloody!!! So I sent it back, my wife has finished her food at this point and they finally brought my food back out, my steak was still bloody and on top of that all the other food on the plate was cold because they sent out the same plate I had before !!! You only have one 15 yr Anniversary!!

    Host needs an attitude check. Restaurant was very dusty and seemed dirty, the booth had food on it when I went to sit down. Service was good, but good was average for the prices. Menu and restaurant could use an upgrade or update. We were seated in the "private dining room" which was essentially two booths and one table in a small hallway type room, #claustrophobia. Our booth was next to a door which led to the casino floor so everytime someone won at the tables you heard screaming. Not very romantic. Overall I would pass on this restaurant and go to Lone Eagle Grille or somewhere else where there's better views and more ambiance for the price and a more updated menu.

    This is a perfect romantic dinner venue for those that want great atmosphere, food, service, and catering to your every wish! My husband and I "discovered" this restaurant 26 years ago on our wedding day...Went back just last night, and it is just as wonderful as remembered. I highly recommend this restaurant to those who want a seriously upscale (but reasonably priced) dining memory! I will always want to return here....

    The restaurant was a little outdated and did seem crowded and loud. However, the service was great and if you leave without satisfying your appetite it is your fault. The food was very good and the drinks were well made. The Sage Room is definitely a place I will return to for a special occasion while in Tahoe.

    The food was excellent and the staff was superb. The Chilean Sea Bass was huge and grilled to perfection and melted in your mouth bursting with flavor. The table side Caesar Salad is a must. I wish I had ordered the Coffee Diablo because it is made table side and it was wonderful to watch it made at the table next to me.

    First time there and I enjoyed the entire meal...the Salad Wedge with Blue Cheese was superb...however, the main course of Steak Diane was as good as it gets. I have been going to Lake Tahoe now for 50 years and I have no reason for not visiting this restaurant before now...now that I have, it will become my first choice for dining.

    When I made the reservation, I indicated we would be celebrating my Father's Birthday as well as my significant other's Birthday. They did absolutely NOTHING to recognize the Birthdays even though we ordered a $30 dessert! They fist sat us next to a beam so that my Mom couldn't push in her chair. We asked to move and they did give us a booth 20 minutes later. We ordered Stag's Leap Cabernet, 2 bottles. We ordered the $65 bottle but they brought and opened the $125 bottles. We didn't know it until the bill came. I asked the manager if he was going to do anything for the inconvenience and he said,"Absolutely not I already gave you a different table!" The food was extremely overpriced. The bill was >$540 for 4 people and only 2 ordered entrees

    This was our first time in Tahoe. Went to on Monday August 4th. Was a great place to go for romantic dinner. The ceasar salad was excellent and service was excellent. The main complaint i had was the steak was way over cooked. Took a really long time to get and I was starving so I didn't complain or send back. Even so I would go back again to give it another try!

    The Sage Room made my Fiancé's special 30th Birthday Dinner just that. With a special menu that printed "Happy 30th Birthday Jonathan" to the lovely dessert they brought out in the end, it was an amazing experience. Our servers were top notch and gave impeccable service. This is our favorite restaurant while visiting Lake Tahoe. The Oysters were amazing.

    We had a great meal with fantastic service from the assistance of our waiter. Our waiter would be given a five. However the remainder of the staff would all be 10. Good thing they were there to make up for his deficiency. The food quality was fantastic and the people who seated us were very very friendly. I would highly recommend this restaurant to all.
